Sjohnh (204) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Smooth, well balanced and flavoursome beer. Amber coloured, with a good head and lacing. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Sweet toffee malts and some citrus zest, perfectly offset by the bitterness.

Cask @ The Black Bull in Blaydon. Served in clean Timothy Taylor Pint Glass, Perfect temperature, head size/retention, sweet flavour, subtle bitter finish. Truly awesome. I could drink it all night.

JorgeLee (1231) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Cask, on this occasion in the Black Cat, Chesham. Bright golden amber colour. Solid malty base, lovely hop attack, marmelade, spicy, slightly earthy, not overpowering, moreish bitter. Hops pull through the house yeast flavour, which seems to need the hops, I don’t like say the Golden Best anywhere near as much. One of those beers that no longer tastes as outlandishly flavourful given the increased bitterness and hop quotients used in more recent times, but still retains excellent balance.

JefVerstraete (1482) - Ghent, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2014
Cask @ Foxton’s restaurant, Berwick. Orange/amber colour, white foam. Creamy foam. Medium carbonation. Very well balanced bitter. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit and hops. Light sweet with light bitter finish. Good!

Osprey87 (1868) - WALES - SEP 14, 2014
Cask at the Dove, Hackney. Hazy dark amber / orange, still, decent off-white head leaves some thick lacing. Aroma is sweet toffee, some light citrus. Body is medium, light carbonation, smooth. Taste is smooth toffee malt, semisweet malts are more prominent than hop character, very soft bitterness. A classic, but too malt-heavy for my taste.

MyLittleTown (8) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014 does not count
A very fine bitter. Somewhat sharper on the palate than many traditional Yorkshire bitters, and with a good lasting finish. Pleasing caramel colour. One to seek out.

Amber colour, nice balanced flavour. Starts of with sweet caramel flavour and has a slightly bitter finish. Very nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
